Crap…now what!

Crap…now what!

I wanted to post in the community a short story about the first night I spent in my apartment after we'd "settled in." I decided to cook my new husband a big elegant meal with everything made from scratch. It was the best idea I could come up with since we were so broke and I wanted to do something nice for him. Each part of the meal made me more and more aware of little things we hadn't thought of to buy when we moved in. Things like a potato masher, (I wound up using a wire whisk and a fork), mixing bowls, (it's impossible to make an entire meal in one small bowl...impossible.) and spatulas. It was a catastrophe I was determined to make work. Then came the killer of all great meals. The mashed potatoes were coming along nicely, tasting great! The veggies were all perfect and delicious smelling. The chicken was in the oven baking and as I checked on it and saw that it was complete and ready to be pulled out the worst thing occurred to me. No Oven Mitts. I could cope with a lack of utensils, forks and knives sufficed but oven mitts...fail! I scrambled all over the apartment trying to find something I could use to pull the stupid dish out. We hadn't bought kitchen towels yet, the bathroom towels were on a shelf I couldn't reach for God only knows what reason and I was smelling my chicken burning already! Before I could waste another second I started ripping up my shirt and wrapping it around my hands. It worked but once the catastrophe was over I was out my favorite shirt and realizing that the ripping may have been a little drastic. I was heading for the bedroom to retrieve a new shirt when suddenly my front door flung open and in walks my husband...and three of his co-workers. I'm pretty sure they only saw a white blur dart into our bedroom but I couldn't come out until my husband convinced me not to be embarrassed. What a way to meet the crew. The things you do for love. Anyway, I would love to hear everyone else's first apartment disasters. I know I've got bunches. (Mod, I checked and couldn't figure if this was aloud or not. If it is I apologize and will delete the post immediately at your request.)
